Cygnus A

A paper roll chart recording 1998-07-07-2200hr UT + 6 hours run-time 

The Radio Telescope homepage   signifies an equatorial period of 18 minutes, however the source Cygnus-A at 40deg N has a longer period on the chart of about 30 minutes owing to the convergence of the Hour Lines towards the celestial N-pole.
